About
Oray and Burcu are a young married couple in lovebut like any couple, they fight. During one of these fights, Oray repeats the word talaq three times, which, according to Islamic law, constitutes a divorce. Filled with regret, he consults an imam, who advises that the couple should at least take a three-month break.

A former burglar, Oray is trying to keep himself on the straight and narrow, and decides to leave their small German town for the duration of the time apart. In his new city, he gets a job at an open-air market, and rents a room from the cousin of the local imam, Bilal. He becomes involved with the mosque where he finds a sense of community and purpose, even befriending a petty thief who reminds him of his younger self. But Bilals more conservative interpretation of Islam, in combination with Orays own struggles, puts a future with Burcu in question.

Winner of the Best First Feature Award at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival, Oray is an insightful and affecting exploration of issues of community, identity, and religious faith.

myBorders JoyFence, the Best Advertising Film at the First Steps Award 2018, will precede the feature film.

In myBorders JoyFence, Michael Kranz creates a disturbing scenario of the future; a cheerful world of isolation. The fictional advertisement features a new product, the JoyFence. With this tool, anyone can shield themselves from the vexations of the real world while staying in a comfortable zone created by a bubble filter system. Fortunately, this is (still) purely fictionalbut for how much longer?
